night president obama spoke at the democratic national convention to a thundering applause. he got all the points he wanted in there including good lines making fun of republicans idea of domestic political. >> obama: they want your vote, but they don't want you to know their plan. that's because all they had to offer is the same prescriptions they've had for the last 30 years. have a surplus try a tax cut. deficit too high? try another. feel a cold coming on? take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations, and call us in the morning. [applause] that ain't that the god's honest truth. that's all they've done since i've been alive. tax cuts and more tax cuts. i hope the president doesn't going along with them in the second term. he promised he would not. let's hold him to that promise. on foreign policy. >> obama: four years ago i promised to end the war in iraq. we did. [applause] i promised to refocus on the terrorists who attacked on 9/11, and we have. in 2014, our longest war will be over. al-qaeda is on the bath to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> cenk: hard to argue with that

is mitt romney trying. >> romney: president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families, the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off of welfare and get a better job. >> cenk: problem number 2 if you have to start your ad by talking about how great your opponent is, you are in trouble. >> i'm not a witch. i'm nothing you have heard. i'm you. i'll go to washington, and do what you would do. i'm christine o'donnell, and i approve this message. >> cenk: on-camera ads are really dicey. what is point number 3? when you are at the bottom of the barrel how do you go below the bottom of the barrel? you go to implied and obvious racism. watch this. >> let me tell you what the big problem with this president is in my opinion. he is absolutely lazy, and detached from his job. >> cenk: okay. lazy black guy. now if it's just sununu, you might say it's just sununu. i don't remember him calling bush that. george w.
